Hello! This year, I'll be taking part in JDRF's Walk to Cure Diabetes, along with one-half million other walkers across the country, as we try to reach our goal of raising $89 million.
Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children.
My two favorite people in the world struggle with this disease every single day. It permeates every aspect of our lives and we never get to take a day off from diabetes. I am incredibly proud of the way my husband and son handle this disease and continue to live their lives in spite of it, but I pray for the day when they no longer have to think about it. I continue to hope that a cure will be found within our lifetimes.
JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. It funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and it's making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure.
Now, more than ever, you can make a crucial difference. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible? Together, we can make the cure a reality!
